Accessing 1,3-Dienes via Palladium-Catalyzed Allylic Alkylation of Pronucleophiles with Skipped Enynes

An unprecedented palladium-catalyzed allylic alkylation of pronucleophiles with unactivated skipped enynes has been developed. This method provides a straightforward access to a wide array of 1,3-dienes without the need to preinstall leaving groups or employ extra oxidants. The reaction exhibited high atom economy, good functional group tolerance, excellent regioselectivities, and scalability. With D<sub>2</sub>O as cosolvent, deuterium could be incorporated in high efficiency.
